Hi all,

Having studied the FSF licenses and their restrictions, I think
it would be reasonable to re-license GTK+ under the LGPLv3
(or later) + GPLv2 linking exception (or, alternatively, simply
multi-license it under LGPLv3 / GPLv2).
But you can't do that. Gtk is *LGPL*-2, so you can't
make it GPL-2 (unless you convince all contributors,
including aliens and dead).

Yes, you can.  Quoth the LGPLv2.1:

Right. My bad, confused the order. I will not
talk about licenses without consulting  my
lawyer first ;)
